How to "Semi-Manually" Calculate a surface width of a V-Bit Carve

I have been struggling to come up with a good way to figure out the surface width of a carve using a V-Bit at a certain depth. After some help from a few friends, I now have a simple tutorial on how to do just that. This is mainly useful for doing basic designs the F-Carve and the likes would be overkill. Let me know if you have any feedback, this is just a v0.1.

Yeah, that was supposed to be a 60° v bit example, I will fix the pdf in the morning.

Edit: I actually just fixed


Wow, I have been looking for something like that for ages. Where/how did you find it?

Google? :slight_smile:

I made this calculator awhile back

You can download it as a number of different file types, as well as “make a copy” for your own Google drive to modify the values.
